Married at First Sight heads to Charlotte, North Carolina for season 9. True love is increasingly hard to achieve but this season we meet eight singles yearning for a life-long partnership. They agree to the provocative proposal of getting legally married to a stranger at the altar. This groundbreaking format offers a shockingly novel twist on the relationship, dating and wedding space. This season we meet our new expert, marriage and family therapist, Dr Viviana Coles (replacing Dr Jessica). Each episode tracks classic lifestyle stories of newlyweds as all couples will be in the same apartment complex which allows them to swop stories and compare experiences. Not forgetting the honeymoon, early nesting, meeting the in-laws, and other universally relatable events of married life. Will they remain together in the end, or decide to separate?
